-kHz ping’s echo off the sea surface (heavy black curve), which is at η ( t ). It does not detect the weaker echoes from the pycnocline (thin black curve); however, pycnocline displacements d ( t ) do influence echoes’ round-trip travel time τ via the dependence of the sound speed profile c ( z , t ) on temperature and salinity profiles. Figure not to scale (i.e., η is typically tens of centimeters while d is tens of meters; e.g., Gill and Niiler 1973 ). The total (time varying) distance
